This episode of the EPL Talk podcast is a continuation of yesterday’s Major League Soccer talk podcast, where we spent thirty minutes talking to Andy Brassell about the Algerian national team. Algeria is in a World Cup group with both England and the United States. In this, the second half of a discussion I had with Andy last week, we talk about how the Desert Foxes match-up with England, the other challenges England faces in South Africa’s Group C, and some observations on development of English talent from a writer who has spent time on World Football Phone-In, Soccernet, and Soccerlens (to name three of his current distribution points) talking about the game on the continent.
